As I'm typing this, the clock is about to strike midnight. I'm hoping to get done by the time it's officially October 3, my Baby Love, Frances Clare's 6th birthday. I just hope she gets to read this blog post by the time she's interested in reading blogs already. I just want her to know that Mommy and Daddy couldn't thank God enough for giving us such a bubbly girl like her. We couldn't forget that joyful day she came to this world through me ( via caesarian section at that). Our first meeting was very unforgettable. From the time I was lying down on the operating table at 1:00pm till the time she was pulled from my tummy at 1:10pm, I was eyeing on what was going on the whole time, so excited to meet her. It was a big feat for me already having to brave the sight of scalpels, blood, seeing my tummy opened, and all. For me, this was a different kind of meeting after having pre-eclampsia during Jeremy's birth. That time, I was under general anaesthesia and was fully unaware of what happened then. And though, we were equally happy when I gave birth to Kuya Jeremy, it was only during Frances' birth when I was fully aware and was there to welcome her into this world. Baby love, please know that the doctor immediately noticed your cute dimples after a few minutes you came out from my tummy and exclaimed, "Pretty, pretty!!!" That's how you are and will always be. Happy Birthday Frances Clare! We love you!
